    Hi, I've been looking at the regs on party wall agreements. However, I've found that all the relvant websites talk about getting the party wall agreement signed BEFORE any extensions are built, but they never mention what happens after the extension was built...
    I'll try to explain...
    I built an extension on the back of my house which marries up to my neighbours (much older) extension.

    When my doc went through planning, I mentioned it ot him, and he wasn;t bothered at all. (I get on with him, and he's a friend).

    However, now that the extension has been built, do I still need to have a party wall agreement? I may sell the house in a few years and I;m wondering if I should draw one up?

    As above it's not retrospective and legally you have zero problem on that score.

    Oh good, and the only thing I need to sell the house in the future, is the building inspectors signing off to say the work was completed to standard etc? (I think it's called the final written completion statement)?

    Yep.

    Your decision notice for your planning approval, and your completion certificate for your building application.
